Legal ruling opens up more challenges to Inheritance

July 2015

A court has ruled that a mother couldn’t disinherit her estranged daughter who she had not been in contact with for over 20 years.

The landmark ruling in the case of Ilott and Mitson should alert people to the court’s powers to interfere with testamentary freedom.

This case highlights the need to ensure that reasoning is provided if any family members are not to inherit from an estate, who might otherwise expect to.
